Do you ever feel like coding is all work and no play? Have you wanted to give SVG animation a go but haven’t found the time or known where to start?
Animation is one of the best ways to bring personality and character to an online experience, but in the busy world of front-end development, it can often be overlooked.
Join me for a day of SVG animation fun. You’ll leave this workshop feeling confident and inspired to make your own creative web animations with SVG.
- Animation principles
- SVG optimisation and SVG basics
- Creating or sourcing your own SVG graphics
- Crafting delightful and performant animations with Greensock animation platform
- SVG morphing and stroke animation with Greensocks SVG specific plugins.
- Adding interaction to your animation
A fully charged laptop and modern browser
The workshop will take place on the 26th March 2020 (the day before the conference).
Afterwards you are invited to another location (TBC) if you wish to continue talking about the day further, or just unwind.
Getting started with SVG Animation
I’m currently a front end dev at Clearleft in Brighton, with a background in graphic design and motion design.
I got started with web animation while working in advertising, making animated banner ads with Greensock. (Happily free of that world now and using those skills on the wider web!)
I organised a non profit - codebar brighton for three years, and ran weekly evening workshops, teaching newbie’s how to code. I also threw some longer workshops on CSS and SVG animation, usually around a half day in length.
This is my first full day workshop, It's aimed at front end developers, but as a former 'designer-who-coded-a-bit’ I would say it’s accessible to anyone with basic coding skills.
The workshop is (hopefully) +-8 hours and should be a lot of fun.
